79- year old Sister Bernadette Moriau explained on Tuesday in a press conference in Beauvais how her paralysis was healed and she was able to walk without medical equipment for the first time in decades, after visiting the Catholic shrine to Our Lady of Lourdes on a pilgrimage in 2008. The incident has recently been recognised as the 70th miracle to occur at the shrine.

Sister Bernadette described how she visited Lourdes on a pilgrimage in 2008. Whilst visiting the shrine, she suddenly felt a sense of "well-being, a relaxation” of her body.

A short while after the visit to the shrine, a voice told her to remove her medical equipment. "To my surprise, when I removed the corset and splint, my foot was straightened. I could move it and I did not hurt”, explained Moriau.
